The paper concludes that the deep-seated structural discontinuity which controls the Yinshan-Tianshan latitudinal belt in northern China continues eastward across the Korean Peninsula and the basement of the Sea of Japan. The main observations includes a set of east-west trending fracture zones, revealed by a 3-D study in the eastern part of the Yinshan-Tianshan belt, extend as far east as the eastern coast of China, indicating that their continuation to Korean Peninsula can be expected.
